Frequently Asked Questions

The Clothes

Where are your clothes made?

All of our shirts – and our premium level suiting – are made in the USA. Our mid-range custom suits are manufactured by an American-owned vendor in Hong Kong, and quality inspected in the USA. There are high quality vendors and low quality vendors scattered throughout Hong Kong and we are confident that we have found the finest in the area.

Where do BE fabrics come from?

Simply put, our fabrics are sourced from the most prestigious mills in the world. Our cotton is sourced from Europe and Japan, and our wool from Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. You may recognize some of the mills we work with: Holland & Sherry of London, Filarte.

How should I wash my BE shirts?

Wash your BE dress shirts with cold water and then air dry. This is the best way to ensure longevity for not just your BE labeled shirts, but any dress shirt. You can find more info here.

How often should I dry clean my BE suit?

Rarely. We recommend you dry clean your suit only a couple times a year. Dry cleaning is a relatively rough process for any garment. And when you do need to dry clean a suit, you should make sure you find someone that you really trust. But if what your suit really needs is a little freshening up, then we recommend investing in a cheap steamer. If you’ve never steamed clothes before, you’ll be amazed at how easily you can get wrinkles to straighten out and get your garment to look like new again.

The Process

How long before I get my clothes?

Shirts take approximately a month, start to finish. And suits and pants may be closer to 5 or 6 weeks. In the rare instance that there are additional alternations required, please allow 1 – 2 extra weeks before you have your clothes in hand.

If I want to buy a suit can I see an example?

Of course. Not only will Ron be wearing a BE suit, but he will probably have one or two extra on hand to show you. He will also have a full-canvas, cut-away suit available to show. This is a mock-up garment that will give you a hands-on example of how our suits are constructed and help you to understand the bespoke difference.

About Appointments

How long are appointments?

This depends on how decisive you are. Sometimes appointments are rather quick, on the order of 45 minutes to an hour. But in general, many first time appointments tend to go for 90 minutes to 2 hours. Although the measuring process is relatively straightforward, we have a lot of fabrics that you can look at, and sometimes that takes some time.

How much will this cost?

On our products pages, you’ll get an idea of what our suiting and shirting costs. A completely custom 2-piece suit begins at $895.00 and can go beyond several thousand dollars depending on the quality of the fabric. Working button holes and full canvas construction incur an additional fee. Regarding shirts, our prices begin at $145.00 and pants begin at $250.00.

I’ve made an appointment, what do I need to do to prepare, if anything?

Depending on what you’re shopping for, it’s helpful to have your best fitting suit or shirt or pant available for Ron to examine. In addition to measuring you for your clothes, Ron will sometimes pull measurements from your existing clothes to help aid him.

What we do and don’t do

Can I have you tailor an old suit that I own?

At BE we don’t physically sew our clothing. Instead, we work with a small group of vendors with whom we trust, and who have a long track record in offering the finest in men’s clothing. However, we do work closely with a very talented local tailor from time to time. In some instances, we will help you to alter your non-BE suit. Please contact us to find out more –

Do you have a physical store?

No, instead, we come to you. We will meet with you at your home or office to show you our available fabrics and take your measurements.

How far will you travel for an appointment?

In general, we cover the entire Front Range of Colorado. Denver, Colorado Springs, Evergreen, and Fort Collins roughly envelop our footprint. Although we have even set up appointments in Wyoming and Nebraska, these were somewhat unique cases. Several of our clients live up in the high country, and we set up times to meet with them while they are in Denver on business. And don’t forget, for shirting, we have many of our fabrics and Featured Shirts available in our online store.

Do you sell other things? Like shoes and socks?

We don’t offer shoes, socks, or belts. But we are never short of an opinion on where to shop for these items. Regarding neckwear and cufflinks, we do have a small quantity of goods to look at during the appointment process.


I don’t consider myself a very stylish guy, is this for me?

At BE we offer suits, shirts and pants, but what we really provide our clients is guidance. We consider ourselves to be Colorado’s leading source of menswear information and advice. Over the years, we have worked with all kinds of guys, from those who know exactly what they are looking for, to guys who may need a refresher on what a notched lapel is. Having a good sense of style isn’t something any of us were inherently born with, it’s something you just need to learn. And it all begins with a simple phone call or email – Ron’s number is 970.231.4588 and he can be reached at

Custom clothing has a reputation for being a bit pretentious, right?

There’s some truth to that, but that isn’t the case at all with BE. After a brief phone call with Ron, it will become quite clear that he’s a very laid-back, Nebraska born guy. What we really excel at is guiding you through the bespoke process and being your mentor. We’re a great group of guys and we’re confident that you’ll enjoy working with us.
